Rigging with the Port-A-Wrap

Port-A-Wraps are probably the most commonly used friction device on the market but not every arborist makes the most out of this essential piece of equipment.

Rossy Ross from Pro Climb and Drew Bristow from DB Tree are conducting a 'Rigging with the Port-A-Wrap' workshop scheduled for Saturday July 3 in Auckland (venue yet to be confirmed). Participants attending the workshop can expect to learn about new ways to attach the porty to the tree and how to easily lift loads using the device. Other topics covered include the effects of different ropes on the Port-A-Wrap, why and how to tension the rigging line and how to reduce the shock loads on the anchor point for safer rigging.

The 'Rigging with the Port-A-Wrap' workshop is a half day from 9am to 1pm and costs $40. Numbers will be limited. The best way to register is to contact Rossy by email: andreas@proclimb.co.nz
